Abstract: Shape optimization system of the joints of the steel-framed diaphragm wall (abbreviated as steel diaphragm wall) is discussed. The optimization problem is formulated as the minimum cost design to decide the shape of the joint under the stress constraints. The analysis model solved by the finite element method consists of male joint, female joint and grout replaced by plain strain elements and springs. Prior to the optimization, the relationships between the stress constraints and the design variables are studied to choose the better optimization technique.
